When they only prescribe meds and diagnose patients? It just seems like a waste. I know knowledge is good, but why isn’t there a specially tailored advanced degree for psychiatrists, since they’re not actually doing things like GP’s are doing, or working in the ER. Is it so that they can better understand their patients? I mean if a mental health patient goes into cardiac arrest in a mental health ward, the psychiatrist isn’t going to be able to do much, are they? Or are they since they did have to go to med school?
